Ingredient Review

Our review of Purina Beyond Simply Beef & Egg Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food begins with a detailed look at the food’s ingredients.

The first ingredient is Beef. Beef is meat from any cattle breed. In pet food, beef can be fresh, freeze-dried, dehydrated, ground, or finely processed into beef meal.

The second ingredient is Chicken Meal. In pet food, chicken meal is often listed as a source of protein. Chicken meal is produced by baking and grinding chicken meat and skin. As a dry form of animal protein, it is most often found in kibble and treats.

The third ingredient is Pea Starch. Pea starch is a gluten-free starch that comes from ground peas. The pea starch in pet food is a source of carbohydrates, and is typically used as a thickener, filler, or gelling agent.

The fourth ingredient is Canola Meal. Canola meal comes from dried canola seeds that have been pulverized during the process of canola oil extraction. In pet food, canola meal serves as a source of plant-based protein, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

The fifth ingredient is Cassava Root Flour. Cassava root flour is a dried, ground flour made with the root of the cassava plant. In pet food, cassava flour serves as a grain-free, gluten-free source of carbohydrates for energy while adding texture to the finished product.

When we analyzed the ingredients in Purina Beyond Simply Beef & Egg Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food, we found that most of the protein is derived from meat based sources.

Nutritional Analysis

Your adult dog needs a balance of macro and micronutrients to thrive. A food formulated for adult maintenance or all life stages is made to meet these needs. While there can be a lot of variation in actual calorie density, adult dog foods are generally intended to provide for basic calorie needs of the average active dog. In addition to satisfying their energy needs, these foods provide the protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and other nutrients your adult dog needs to survive. Again, not all adult foods are the same, so you may have to search around for the right fit for your dog.
